10 years, Nobody could catch me.
I ran circles around the corporate cool kids and made them look like
incompetents. It took Fraud to Finally Bring me Down. I was as shocked
as anybody I got away with it as long as I did. I led the charmed life
of an imbecile. I always have. I believe in luck, but I believe you make your own luck. Welcome to the Pez Outlaw World.

Over a 10 year period I spent well over 1/2 million Dollars cash on
Pez dispensers in Hungary. At least $250,000.00 of that was in the
form of bribes
This in short is the story of a middle class factory rat who turned a
$3,000.00 investment into a million dollar business. A high school
dropout who traveled the world for 10 years searching for & buying Pez
everybody has seen the Seinfeld episode with the pez dispenser. This
story goes into the world behind that brief reference. Here are the bullet points for my proposed book or movie, Pez Outlaw.
For 10 years I traveled to Europe almost every month buying Pez. Spending just under 1 year abroad.
I made over 70 trips to Europe, spending
roughly $700,000.00 cash buying pez. This excludes Plane tickets, cars
& hotels, if these were included it would be closer to 1
I hand carried roughly 700,000 pez between Europe and the USA on those 70 trips.
Countries visited buying Pez included;
Canada, Australia, Austria, South Africa, Spain, France, Slovenia,
Germany, Hungary, Czech Republic, Slovak Republic, Switzerland and
For 5 years in the 1990s I was the
largest Pez Dealer in the world. This rough draft explains how that
experience affected my life.
Total Amount of money spent buying Pez in the USA and Europe, well over 2 million dollars.
Number of Pez dispensers bought and sold, approx 2 million overall.
I operated in an underground black
market Pez economy for 10 years. Making me a Pez Outlaw. A man on the
run with a giant bulls-eye on my back.
How and Why in the end I lost 8.5 Million Dollars selling Pez.
Pez Outlaw Diary is the most unique book ever written about Pez. Pez Outlaw Diaries is the Pez story that has never been told before.

The Raba Hotel in Gyor Hungary
This is the Raba
Hotel in Gyor. I spent well over 6 months here if you add up all my
stays over a 10 year period. I loved this place. Highly recommended if
you visit Hungary. Last few years of my travels my room was in far
left corner of picture. The ones with balconies.
the Raba Hotel. I spent a lot of time here smoking cigarettes drinking
espresso & Fanta orange as a chaser. Absolutely lovely place,
many fond memories. Table with thingy on it was my table.
The Elvis Cafe.
The Elvis Cafe was this really weird restaurant located at the side of
the road. I used to pass this cafe every trip in Hungary. Like I
said, If you take the M1 freeway you really don't see Hungary. You
have to take two lane blacktops if you want to see a passenger plane
sticking out of a building. This restaurant was located about midway
between the Vienna Hungarian border and Gyor. I actually stopped at
this cafe several times. Had espresso up in the plane and bought
Elvis Cafe outside Gyor in Hungary. Picture courtesy of Rudi.
The Real Pez Truck
The real for
real Pez truck. Parked at the Yellow House aka Hungarocany in Gyor. For
all the trucks that have been made and sold to collectors. I never
understood why someone did not make the real thing. For me this truck is
an icon. This truck is also the reason I thought Gunther was
disappointed after we made our first Pez buy. He had them back it up to
the warehouse, so once we were done it could be loaded for transport.
That buy was early days only a few thousand dollars. What am I saying?
I never in 10 years bought more than could fit in a good medium size
car. Five duffel bags was my limit. I used to see this truck in
Hungary, Slovenia and in between. Picture courtesy of Rudi.
Jánossomorja was the name of the town or was it the warehouse where
Gunther sent me. All you had to do was spot the smoke stack with Pez
on it. then find the roads that got you there. This was the warehouse
where Pez dispensers were stored. At the time it was also where candy
was made and pez were carded. Like Kolinska in Slovenia. More or less
the distribution hub for the old Eastern Block countries and Russia.
Gunther owned that part of the world when it came to Pez.
This is the
building Where I found Gunther Leitner that day. That's my crappy little
red rental car turning the corner. Unlike the photo the parking lot
was empty and the main door was wide open. Below Photo of the Ferry Boat I booked passage on with Silja Ferry Lines in Sweden. Inset is Pez Pal Mariner.
I arrived at Silja Ferry lines &
was allowed to board the ferry & go to the gift shop on board the
ship. There I met this really wonderful lady who ran things named
Tuula. She said we have about 60 or so Pez Pal Mariner available but
you have to be on board as a passenger & at sea before I can sell
you any. I told her I really needed a lot of them so she checked &
said she had 2 pallets of pez pal mariner at the other port. Off I
went to buy a ticket. I booked a round trip, in a Tax deductible high
end room. It was a room with an exterior window, so a view of the
whole trip. This room even had a shower & a TV. Until this trip
the idea of being on a large boat out in the middle of a big body of
water left me a little uneasy. After this trip I realized it was more
like being in a small city that happened to be a boat.

A mad car chase through the streets of Vienna, escaping in a hale of
Machine Gun fire at border check points. Forged papers, smuggling
& payoffs. Clandestine meetings with European underworld figures
at the Raba coffee shop in Gyor Hungary. Always looking over my
shoulder for fear I was being Followed. These are the fantasies I lived
& almost believed for 10 years traveling the world buying Pez
Recently PEZscrapper asked this question concerning this project.
If they ever make a movie of this. What actor would you like to play you?
Hayes (Roy Rogers movie sidekick) is dead, so Bill Murray would be fun. If the movie used the story as a launching point & applied a liberal
dose of fantasy. Well, now your talking. Instead of border guards simply
holding Machine Guns, have them shooting at me. Where I escape in a
hale of gunfire. Instead of simply driving on sidewalks or through the
walking area of downtown Vienna. Make it a car chase scene. Make it an
action comedy about importing Black Market Pez Dispensers. Make Gyor
& the Raba my hideout, where I met with European underworld figures
setting up deals. In my fantasy mind that's how I always saw it. The quirky thing being that it was always about Pez Dispensers.
